GPRTU To Increase Transportation Fares On Monday, 24th October, 2022.

The Ghana Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has planned to increase fares on transportation starting Monday, October 24, 2022, and announced new fares for public transport.

This plan to increase transportation fares is about the frequent increase in fuel prices at the fuel pump.

Recently, the prices of Diesel and Petrol range from GH¢15 and GH¢13 respectively at major fuel pumps; this rapid increase in fuel prices is eating up the profit of those who sell fuels.

A meeting between the GPRTU and Transport Ministry on the fare adjustment ended in a stalemate.

After speaking to Citi News, the Industrial Relations Officer for the GPRTU, Abbas Imoro said the union can do little to salvage the situation.

“Normally, if we can conclude, we will come out on Monday with a percentage of increment. We will give the passengers a few days to adjust themselves to the new prices.”

He further admonished passengers to bear with the GPRTU to keep their business running.

“We’ve been very considerate. This would have been the third or fourth adjustment from May. We are all in this country and have seen frequent increments in fuel prices. But we have sacrificed to contain it. But we can no longer bear the cost.”

On this note, after the final declaration of the new prices for transport all must be ready to comply and bear whatever the fares would be since there is little to do about it.

“So we urge passengers to bear with us.”
